Call to Improve PTS Access Routes

The municipal spokesperson for the Spanish socialist party (PSOE) and mayoral candidate for Granada, Francisco Cuenca, has called for improvements to be made to the roads into the Granada Health Science Technological Park (PTS). Mr Cuenca has called upon the Spanish Ministry of Public Works and the Andalusian Government to urgently undertake the works necessary to improve access to the Park, as the current infrastructure may be unable to cope with the opening of the new Nevada shopping centre, the new hospital and the university faculties.

Francisco Cuenca has visited the PTS along with other representatives from the municipal arm of the PSOE and met with the managing director of the PTS Foundation, Jesús Quero. The visit was an opportunity to find out first-hand the shortcomings of the current access routes into the Park, which does not have enough roads to cope with the traffic expected this year, when the shopping centre and most of the buildings that are nearly ready in the PTS will open their doors.  

According to Mr Cuenca, the Spanish Ministry of Public Works and the Autonomous Government of Andalusia must meet urgently to find a solution for some of the roundabouts at the entrances to the Park. He believes the required works would not be too costly.

According to Mr Cuenca, the Andalusian Government has already started to investigate the possibility of splitting the Ogíjares roundabout in two.   During his visit, Francisco Cuenca said that the PSOE in Granada had already brought a motion to the Council to urge the Ministry of Public Works to "immediately undertake the more than necessary works in the Park" so that the main roads around the PTS, the Ronda Sur and the A-44, will be able to cope with the traffic when the new hospital and shopping centre open to the public.
